Vision of Abominations in Jerusalem

1 It came about in the sixth year, on the fifth day of the sixth month, as I was sitting in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD F78 fell on me there. 2 Then I looked, and behold, a likeness as the appearance of a F79 man; from His loins and downward there was the appearance R205 of fire, and from His loins and upward the appearance of brightness, like the appearance of R206 glowing F80 metal. 3 He stretched out the form of a hand and caught me by a lock of my head; and the Spirit R207 lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north F81 gate of the inner court, where the seat of the idol of jealousy, which provokes R208 to jealousy, was located. 4 And behold, the glory R209 of the God of Israel was there, like the appearance which I saw in the plain.

5 Then He said to me, "Son of man, raise R210 your eyes now toward the north." So I raised my eyes toward the north, and behold, to the north of the altar gate was this idol R211 of jealousy at the entrance. 6 And He said to me, "Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations R212 which the house of Israel are committing here, so that I would be far from My sanctuary? But yet you will see still greater abominations."

7 Then He brought me to the entrance of the court, and when I looked, behold, a hole in the wall. 8 He said to me, "Son of man, now dig R213 through the wall." So I dug through the wall, and behold, an entrance. 9 And He said to me, "Go in and see the wicked abominations that they are committing here." 10 So I entered and looked, and behold, every form of creeping things and beasts and detestable things, with all the idols of the house of Israel, were carved on the wall all around. 11 Standing in front of them were seventy R214 elders R215 of the house of Israel, with Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan standing among them, each man with his censer R216 in his hand and the fragrance of the cloud of incense rising. 12 Then He said to me, "Son of man, do you see what the elders of the house of Israel are committing in the dark, each man in the room of his carved images? For they say, `The R217 LORD does not see us; the LORD has forsaken R218 the land.' " 13 And He said to me, "Yet you will see still greater abominations which they are committing."

14 Then He brought me to the entrance of the gate R219 of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and behold, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz. 15 He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? Yet you will see still greater abominations than these."

16 Then He brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs R220 to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and they R221 were prostrating F82 themselves eastward toward the sun. 17 He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? Is it too light a thing for the house of Judah to commit the abominations which they have committed here, that they have filled R222 the land with violence and provoked R223 Me repeatedly? For behold, they are putting the twig to their nose. 18 "Therefore, I indeed will deal in wrath. My eye will have no pity nor will I spare; and though R224 they cry in My ears with a loud voice, yet I will not listen to them."
